Players take time to develop. Todd Bertuzzi anyone? Think the Islanders still wish they had him?

Dudes played like 3 mos in the NHL... relax... I think you guys get caught up to quickly in what a players top end is... without ever letting the player determine what his top end will be.

Carter - 8g,9a 17 points at #11 - He projects out to 19g,22a thats not bad considering other players in their 1st year..

Iginla - 21g,29a 50 points at #11 1st NHL year.
Bertuzzi - 18g,21a 39 points at #23 1st NHL year
Sundin - 23g,36a 59 points at #1 1st NHL year
Nash - 17g,22a 39 points at #1 1st NHL year
Selanne - 76g, 56a 132 points at #10 1st NHL year

Now that's a rookie season
